headed by joe biden taking aim on stopping gun violence but the n.r.a. and other groups fighting back this morning. they say it is a cover to attack the second amendment. let's go to our bureau. peter doocy with a report. >> the president of the national rifle association said in a cnn interview last night that by inviting his organization into the white house, the administration was just checking a box so they could say they met with supporters of the second amendment. here's the n.r.a.'s official statement. "we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment while claiming that no policy proposals would be prejudiced, this task force spent most of its time on restrictions on lawful firearms owners. based on that, it does not sound like there is much common ground between the national rifle association and the white house." but the vice president indicated otherwise. he also says he thinks a great deal can be done without in any way impinging on the rights the second amendm
. the n.r.a. invites joe biden to come face-to-face in a few hours. it comes as the v.p. threatened president obama made to bypass congress to use executive orders to enact new gun control laws. can he do that? peter doocy live in washington with the latest. >> brian, former president bill clinton was in vegas at the consumer electronics show, and part of his presentation was a plea for stricter gun control. it's very interesting. he said in some places with high crime rates there are going to need to be armed guards in schools, an idea the n.r.a. has endorsed. but he also said the broader issue of gun control must still be addressed. >> i grew up in [inaudible] why do anybody need a 30-clip for a gun? why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets? half of all the mass killings in the united states occur since the assault weapons ban expired. >> vice president biden yesterday said the president is talking to attorney general holder about potentially issuing an executive order to restrict weapons with the hope of preventing gunmen from committing mass murder in t
owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all your guns away. >> the n.r.a. has made it very clear it is adamantly opposed to any measure that will ban assault weapons or high-capacity ammunition magazines. the n.r.a. predicts the president will not be able to get any congressional passage on anything akin to that. a source does tell fox news, as you've mentioned, steve, earlier, the task force has identified 19 different options the president could implement through an executive order. of course that would clearly create a stir and fight on capitol hill. >>steve: capitol hill hates to get bypassed. thank you very much. >>gretchen: to your other headlines, former kansas city chief linebacker jovan belcher was drunk when he killed his girlfriend and himself. his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit yet when cops found him passed out in his car hours before the shooting, they did not arrest him. later belcher shot, murdered his girlfriend, nine times. then he drove to his practice facility and ended up killing himself. >>eric: a british woman who got in trouble
he's expected to meet with strong resistance when the n.r.a. meets with the task force. peter doocy live in washington. >> eric holder is going to be at today's white house meeting with representatives for victims of gun violence and advocates of gun safety. part of the that effort that the vice president is spear heading to come up with recommendations for changes to gun laws. it will be part of a similar meeting in d.c. tomorrow but they are likely to strike out at the white house with their proposal to put armed guards in schools. >> i think if the president said he doesn't want to prejudge any recommendations that any stakeholder might present. he did in his "meet the press" interview respond to a question about the specific recommendation that the n.r.a. had made, by saying that he was skeptical that putting more guns in schools would solve this problem. >> president obama has already told congress he wants them to put legislation on the books banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. he also wants them to close loopholes in the background check system. but one new m
to worry about or the n.r.a. members or the tea party members, you have written. it's the crooks. if they want to do something bad, they're going to figure a way to get a gun. >> it's interesting because i never considered myself part of that crowd in any way. i'm not a firearms guy in any way. but when you look at all the killings being committed, whether the drive-by shootings in compton or watts or places like harlem or look at school shootings at places like sandy hook or columbine, none of these people are people that go to gun shows. you never hear about those people committing killings. maybe everyone has to calm down on this issue and take a moment to breathe. >>steve: before you go, i think to combat what happened, for instance, in sandy hook is the same thing the n.r.a. said and the president himself yesterday said we need more money for people with guns in schools? >> we've got a problem. we've got to address it. and we're going to have to pay for it a little bit. if that means emboldening law enforcement with more funds, we've got to do that. >>steve: jeffrey scott sh
. >> he's calling for basically violence against the n.r.a. and against gun owners and against politicians who support the n.r.a. he's saying, he suggests strapping them to the back of pickup trucks and driving them around a parking lot until they see the error of their ways. >>steve: he shouts out mitch mcconnell. he says i would tie mitch mcconnell and john boehner to the back of a chevy pickup truck and drag them around. great. >> not helpful. of course people feel passionately about this, what happened in newtown. i hope people don't lose the passion for solving this problem. i hope that everybody still feels as strongly as they did the day after. but you need a little bit of a cooler -- >>steve: i love what they did in your state of new jersey. in marlboro township they said for the next three months i'm going to have an armed guard in these schools, the eight elementary schools. i think if you dress them like teachers and don't scare the kids -- >>brian: i think that's a great idea. a bad idea was out in suburban new york the journal newspapers, editors, there they are, what they did
illegally. something that the nra wanted all along, apparently the white house is going to suggest and that is enforce the laws already on the books. >> brian: there is going -- they say up to 19 executive orders involved. executive orders are not new. george washington said by the power i have, let's have thanksgiving. george h.w. bush banned the importation of semiautomatic weapons. but with this president, with this issue that so many people are passionate about and feel the same about newtown, horrified, it's amazing this is going to be one of those divisive issues in which the president goes off on his own and congress goes off on their own and together, there is a lot of similarities of what they want, but it seems as though this white house has no interest in reaching a consensus. so for four weeks he talks to people. i don't know what he got accomplished in that period. but you could just see us in dividing lines again, like the fiscal cliff, and just like the debt ceiling is about to. >> steve: because when they call for an assault weapon ban, there is absolutely no chance

are opposed by the n.r.a. so this is a big issue for mayor bloomberg. but i think we need to not only point out the hypocrisy but also the after-effect. the fact that we were trailed by nypd officers who claim they had security jurisdiction which is a phrase that doesn't exist, by the way, to question me and show i.d. as though i was some teenager on a friday night trying to buy liquor. >>steve: you're right about the hypocrisy. look at "the journal news," the newspaper in suburban new york which published those names of people who legally had guns, and then what did they have to do? they had to hire armed guards to protect them in the fallout. >> absolutely. that's the point. listen, americans know best how to protect their family. and you have, especially in urban cities, you have thugs, wanna-be thugs looking to vandalize homes. it's not like if congress issues a directive, if you're going to rob a home, do it by yourself. don't have someone with you, don't have an assistant. obviously criminals aren't going to follow that. therefore, why should mayor bloomberg and other politicians who

're drive-by shootings or some of these school shooting, none of these are people who belong to the nra. not people who are major firearm owners. they're people who are either evil or they're sick and they come across guns by getting them from someone else, usually illegally. they're going to get them anyway. >> steve: exit question, what should be done, if anything? >> i think we need to try to step up law enforcement and enforce the regulations and laws we already have on the books, put more officers on the street. >> steve: interesting stuff. we thank you very much. former dc criminal prosecutor, thank you for joining us live. >> thank you. >> steve: all right. what do you think about that? e-mail us. meanwhile a stunning new report could change the way you eat. some popular foods not as advertised like your tea is really made from grass? lawn grass. that's what it says in the teleprompter, folks. so it's got to be true. then, parents, before you do your taxes, you're going to want to hear this. nicole with the breaks you can get for kids. i've got three oh! progress-oh!

that the nra is trying to weave about young people and guns, guns are positive things, in the climate of america. >> she admits her bill will be a tremendous uphill climb. there is tremendous assistance not only from republicans, but red state democrats, many of whom are facing reelection two years from now. adding to the confusion, are these comments from police chief ray kelly who said over the past two years, only 2% of the people arrested in new york city for gun-related violence had assault weapons. here is kelly. >> we don't want them on the streets. make no mistake about it, but the problem is the hand gun, 60% of the murders in new york city are caused by hand guns and we have too many of them. >> it gets underway at 11:15. we'll keep you apprised. back to you. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that update from the white house. >> steve: about a half hour ago we talked to the sheriff of milwaukee county, david clark, junior. he had started running a 30-second psa where essentially he says, i need you in the game, people out there in milwaukee. it talks about how with officers
than local police. i think secret service has to carry a gun. like the n.r.a. should not be bringing up president obama's kids because they have guns. that's just the rules. >>steve: there are a lot of people who don't like guns but they use them nonetheless. in the op-ed pages of the "new york times" today there is a fellow by the name of justin cronyn who lives in texas, confessions of a liberal gun owner. >>gretchen: this gentleman says he's a new england liberal born and bred but now lives in texas, and he likes to have his guns. here's a portion of the op-ed. my wife is afraid of my guns, though she also says she's glad i have them. my 16-year-old daughter asked to take a pistol lesson. the instructor ran her through the basics demonstrating with a glock 9 millimeter how to hold it, load it, pull back the slide. you'll probably have trouble with that part, he said. a lot of women do. oh really, my daughter replied and with a cagey smile proceeded to rack her weapon with such authority you could have heard it in the parking lot. a proud papa moment, i confess it was. it's interestin
